A request from Neus Campanya Llovet, PhD Student, MUN, Canada concerning the promotion of the ONC Digital Fishers Campaign:
Dear Deep-sea community,
I’m a PhD student in Paul Snelgrove’s lab interested in the trophic ecology of deep-sea benthic invertebrates. I deployed an experiment at 900 m depth in Barkley Canyon (NE Pacific) using enrichments of different phytoplankton species to assess selective feeding by infauna (using push cores) and epifauna (using video recordings).
The experiment was deployed in front of an Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) observatory camera and we created a “digital fishers” campaign that invites the general public to help identify fishes, crabs, and other visitors to the enrichments. I would appreciate as much help as possible in disseminating the project and need for help so please circulate to friends and family who have interest in ocean life!
Find the link of the campaign below, which explains everything. Registration is required but simple and free, and the tasks required are not complicated.
Thanks for your help!
